Mr Yuko S. of San Jose CA USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Mr Yuko S.
Gender: Male   Age: 22-25
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I custom tailor each lesson for each and every one of my students. The lesson format is very interactive and mostly non-hierarchical. The best teachers know that they cannot be the center focus of an entire lesson. Stepping away and allowing the student to try and explain a difficult concept or method builds confidence, enhancing memory and recall, and makes each lesson more fun and interesting.
